College of Arts and Sciences Career Development Info:

Specific assistance in the College of Arts and Sciences can be reached by clicking on the link OU CAS Career Development:

Adrienne Jablonski, Director of Corporate Engagement for the College of Arts & Sciences has a very important message for all of you regarding the importance of starting career exploration and one’s internship or job search early in the semester. "Most companies that recruit in the spring, wrap up their interviews before spring break. This is surprising information for our students to learn, as they often wait to search for employment opportunities until late in the spring semester, oftentimes after they have decided not to pursue graduate school."

To help you get moving with this as early as possible, OU holds many upcoming opportunities for professional development.
